2016-2017 Ohio School Entry Immunization Requirement for Meningococcal

Starting with the 2016-2017 school year, all incoming 7th grade through 12th grade students in Ohio must have proof that they have the age-appropriate meningococcal vaccine.

  • Students entering the 7th grade are required to have at least one dose of the meningococcal and Tdap vaccine prior to school entry
  • Students entering 12th grade must have a second dose of meningococcal vaccine, with a minimum interval between 8 weeks prior to entry. If the first dose of meningococcal vaccine was administered after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required.

LCHD participates in the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program to help ensure that all children have access to the vaccines they need. Childhood Immunizations mandated by the Ohio Department of Health are $21.00 per administration fee.  No VFC eligible child is turned away due to inability to pay.

If you plan on bringing your child to clinic, please bring a copy of their immunization records and the child's Medicaid card, if they have one.  

If the parent/guardian is unable to bring the child then a note giving permission for someone else to bring the child must be presented at the time of the visit. 

Every effort is made to give all vaccinations a child is eligible for at the time of a single visit to help keep children up-to-date according to the recommended immunization schedule.  Administration of as many vaccines at the same time as staffing will permit is also less traumatic for the child.

The Health District seeks to comply with the Healthy People 2020 goal that 90% of children will be completely immunized & up-to-date by the age of 3.

SIDS stands for sudden infant death syndrome. This term describes the sudden, unexplained death of an infant younger than 1 year of age.  Some people call SIDS "crib death" because many babies who die of SIDS are found in their cribs. But, cribs don't cause SIDS.  Click here for more information about SIDS.

Bereavement Visits

LCHD will provide a bereavement visit by a registered nurse for those who wish one.  Call the Health District at 592.9040 for more information.
